Spontaneous Tumors of the Uterus and Ovaries in Animals

  • E. Cotchin


In this chapter, a survey is made of the spontaneous tumors of the uterus and ovaries in animals. The bulk of information is about such tumors in domesticated animals, but some reference is also made to tumors in laboratory animals, wild animals, and animals in zoos. This is not a fully comprehensive bibliographic review but highlights the features of these tumors that appear to me, a veterinary pathologist, to be of most interest.
